Putting Paraeducators on the Path to Teacher Certification
Morrison, Judith; Lightner, Lindsay
Phi Delta Kappan, v98 n8 p43-47 May 2017
In response to local districts' needs for certified teachers with community roots who understand local schools and students, the authors developed an innovative alternative route for paraprofessionals based on a traditional bachelor's program. Their goals were to provide a rigorous, research-based program that allows paraprofessionals to get a university degree and, in the process, to get course credit for skills and knowledge gained on the job. This article describes both the challenges involved in developing the program and its successes.
